Rob Zabrecky, the former frontman of new wave punk band Possum Dixon, has written a memoir called "Strange Cures." It's about LA's rock 'n roll scene during the late 1980s and 1990s. Zabrecky chronicles his early days growing up in "boring Burbank," his fascination with seedy Hollywood and music on the Sunset strip, and his own Hollywood story.
